NEWS:

  • Right fielder Shin-Soo Choo injured his left hamstring during Tuesday’s win against the Royals. He was removed from the game in the eighth inning and missed the next five games. Choo is being cautious after his history of rushing back from an injury prematurely. He hopes to return to the lineup on Tuesday.
  • Left-handed reliever Rafael Perez was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left lat muscle. Nick Hagadone was recalled from Triple-A Columbus to take his place in the bullpen.

WAHOO’S ON FIRST HIGHLIGHTS:

  • The Indians lead the majors with 101 walks through 20 games. The New York Yankees are second with 86.
  • The Indians led the division by a game after Sunday’s win over  Chicago and Detroit.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK:

“It’s always fun to jump around acting like kids.”—Casey Kotchman after the Tribe’s walk-off victory on Friday night.

PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Derek Lowe

When the Indians traded for Derek Lowe this offseason, we weren’t sure what to expect. So far, he’s surpassed everyone’s expectations. Lowe pitched well on Tuesday, only allowing one run in six innings, and completely down the Angels’ offense Sunday.
